HoloNet Links #214
Are you ready for Early Access? It will be here in less 4 days! As the season is changing into Fall, so the game is gearing up for a huge amount of changes with the upcoming expansion. Ready or not the expansion and changes are almost here. My pre expansion checklist has a few things that I may not get to, but I did manage to get one of my major objectives completed. I was able to obtain a specific title. What was that title, find out next.
Now, we can get into this week’s links after the Jump…
It has been several weeks and several fights with a certain assassin droid in two different Flashpoints, but I was finally able to obtain the Meatbag title. This was not done just by myself. I have a few guildies in Unholy Alliance / Wookiee Mistake to thank, especially Mox.
The changes coming to Flashpoints will be good for the game, but some of the fun things, like pulling all the mobs and first two bosses in the False Emperor FP will not be possible after the expansion. I am still working on a couple more achievements, but either way I am excited for the Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion.
- Upcoming CRR Livestreams
Happy October! Join Heather and Jason this Sunday, Oct. 18th, 2015, at 4pm EDT / 1pm PDT. We will be celebrating the upcoming expansion release and our predictions/excitement for Knights of the Fallen Empire. We welcome a special guest to the show. Eric Musco will be joining us as we celebrate the Early Access coming on Oct. 20th. We would love to see you in the chatroom during the show.
Corellian Run Radio would again like to thank all those who attended, watched, and followed our Twitch channel.

- Subscribe by October 19th for ingame reward
As the Early Access nears, there is one last opportunity for an ingame reward for subscribing by October 19th. For all subscribers by October 19th, you will receive a Knights of the Old Republic based swoop speeder. This is the final promotion reward for subscribers leading up to the expansion.
- Dev notes
I wanted to let you know that the dev team has found, and corrected the issue affecting Conquest rewards. This issue will be resolved next Tuesday, when we deploy Game Update 4.0. That means that you will be able to play Conquests normally and should receive both your Guild and Personal rewards as intended.
The Conquest event that ends next Tuesday may still be in a broken state (as this is before we have deployed the fix). If that happens, we will work on issuing those rewards at a later date.

Correct, Conquests will no longer be disabled.
Just as many, including me, were thinking that not having Conquest would be a bad idea, the devs located the issue and will be patching the problem when the Early Access goes live. A huge kudos to the dev team for making the fix and keeping Conquest from being put on hold. Not only does it maintain the Conquest system ingame, but will make it possible for everyone to work to get their personal rewards and needed new crafting materials.

- Swtorista sponsoring Outlander Screenshot contest
There is a few days left in the Outlander Screenshot contest Swtorista.com is sponsoring via this Reddit thread. The contest is to showcase your characters that you plan to take into the Knights of the Fallen Empire. The entry deadline is October 18th. Below explains how you enter the contest. It will require your screenshot and the comment for the image which will be the description of your toon/outfit. There will be a total of 10,000 total Cartel Coins that will be given out to random contest entries. Good luck to all of those entering the contest!
HOW TO ENTER:
- Post an Imgur (not photobucket, not tumblr, not puush) link to one recent screenshot of your character with the UI off in the comments. Please link a single screenshot per comment, not an album (the script doesn’t work with albums, bummer), not multiple screenshots (only first link will get used).
2. You may enter each of your characters once who you plan on playing as THE OUTLANDER in the upcoming expansion, to a max of 15 characters (aka please don’t enter your level 1 character you’ve just started, spam entering will get you disqualified from the contest). DO EACH CHARACTER IN A SEPARATE COMMENT!
3. Your comment will turn into the description of your screenshot. Tell us about your Outlander or your outfit!
- SWTOR music video
This week we have another amazing music video. The video reminds me of a movie trailer. It is focused on the ingame system, Galactic Starfighter. The video is the second one I have seen dedicated to GSF. The video trailer highlights one squadron of players on the Progenitor server. The use of GSF gameplay footage along with a few RP style scenes filmed on fleet and in a guild ship is nicely done. It has a real SWTOR meets Top Gun, at least from my point of view. Take some time watch the video and judge for yourself. Let us know what you think of the video created by YouTube user Peter Willet.
Please let us know if you have a particular link, story, video, or blog related to SWTOR we would love to hear about it! You can send those to us here at Corellian Run Radio and we can place it in a future article. Just email us the links and/or the details for the event at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can also leave any link suggestions in the comments below, or in Corellian Run Radio’s Facebook group. See you next week!
